Infrastructure & Communication

Work of the Yanomami Foundation

The lack of specific resources, such as medical equipment, personnel, and reliable telecommunication, increase the risk of devastating epidemics and incursions of illegal gold miners within Yanomami territory. The Yanomami Foundation is committed to reinforcing critical infrastructures such as medical clinics and schools to advance education programs and enhance communication systems. 

Our proposed initiatives, which will be implemented through a partnership with healthcare professionals and stakeholders in Yanomami territory, aim to improve existing infrastructure and communication systems. These efforts will be funded through a combination of government grants, private donations, and fundraising events. The initiatives will enhance the monitoring of Yanomami health situations, improve disease surveillance and medical response times, and significantly limit the spread of infectious diseases. Moreover, these projects will ensure reliable emergency transportation of patients and medical personnel to outpatient clinics, directly saving lives.

Promoting Clean Energy

We acknowledge the impact of various technologies and tools on the environment in the Yanomami territory. However, we understand the importance of clean energy and power supply for Yanomami programs and the protection of the Amazon. Therefore, we endorse projects implementing advanced, innovative, and zero-emissions technologies to help the Yanomami achieve their goals. These projects aim to minimize the output of harmful pollutants and toxins while meeting complex energy needs.

Yanomami Foundation Satellite

Moreover, our impact will reduce the region's dependency on fossil fuels. By collaborating with Yanomami programs and other support groups, we build international and intercultural trust while working towards common goals.

Current projects include:

  • Installation of reliable satellite communication systems at Yanomami schools and medical clinics.

  • Replacing gas-powered outboard motors with fully electric motors.

  • Installation of solar panels and reliable off-grid battery supplies.

We need your support!
